Oh, poor, dear, head-up-his-arse Prince. The times, they have left the former singing superstar in the dust. In an interview with London's Daily Mirror, the reporter was not allowed to bring a camera, tape recorder or mobile phone (translation: "technology, screech!").
In the interview, the teensy artist waaaaahed that his new album "20TEN," which nobody cares about nor even knew was on the horizon, will be released in the U.K. as a freebie in the Mirror this weekend. Why come? Cause Prince says he "believe(s) in finding new ways to distribute my music." Translation: "I've burned bridges with every record company and no one else gives a shit."
In addition, his new stuff will not be available for download, on YouTube or on his web site—which he's shuttered. And why's dat? This gets even better. Bitsy responds, "The internet's completely over. I don't see why I should give my new music to iTunes or anyone else. They won't pay me an advance for it and then they get angry when they can't get it.
"The internet's like MTV. At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated. Anyway, all these computers and digital gadgets are no good. They just fill your head with numbers and that can't be good for you."
This from the same dude who once believed words were too good for him, so his name became a symbol. Let's see, how do you spell Prince? Oh, yes, like this: i-r-r-e-l-e-v-a-n-t.
